Why is basketball good for you?

Basketball is good for you because you run up and down a court trying to score in the basket and trying to get around 5 defenders and sometimes your own teammates. Then after you make the basket, or you miss and the other team gets the rebound, you have to play defense and prevent the other team from scoring. You can also steal the ball and go on a fastbreak, and then you are going as fast as you possibly can to keep the defense away from catching you and blocking your shot.

Can own goals be scored in basketball?

Yes. This happens once in a while if the ball is accidentally tipped into the hoop while trying to rebound. Also, once in a while a player will forget which end of the court his team is defending and take a shot at his own team's basket. This happens fairly often with very young players who easily forget which end of the court they are on.

What position are soccer players in that are similar to guards in basketball?

Center MidfieldsWhile there is no direct correlation between the positions due to the inherent differences of the sports, there are a similarities between basketball guards and soccer (football) midfielders. Basketball guards are usually responsible to bring the ball forward from the end of the court towards the basket they are trying to score points in. Soccer midfielders are usually responsible to bring the ball forward from the end of the pitch where their own goal is located towards the end where they are trying to score goals. They also tend to initiate and direct much of the play and are normally some of the fastest members of the team - like basketball guards. Also, like basketball guards, they tend to play closer to the middle of the pitch (or, in the case of guards, court) than the other players.
